Paul thinks that Michael should approach Lowell regarding the letter. Michael isn’t so sure, especially after reading the letter again. Paul questions if Michael feels that he made a mistake in wanting to track his biological father. Michael admits that he just doesn’t know what all he wants to say to the man that has been out of his life for the majority of his life. Realizing that it’s tough for Michael to deal with, Paul asks him if he were separated from Fen for long periods of time, wouldn’t he want to at least have a start with him; to know how he’s been; if he’s happy. Sighing, Michael tells Paul that he’s afraid that he’ll wind up losing quality time with his son; something that later down the line could have his son resenting him for in the long run. Paul tells Michael he should face Lowell; once he does, the heavy weight of questions will be lifted off his shoulders.
Victoria is surprised that Neil doesn’t like the presentation of Chaos; especially considering that Drucilla will be spokes modeling most of the promotions. Neil says that Ji Min is just too full of himself; and that’s something he isn’t impressed with. While he may have good ideas, he has an arrogance about him that could assume premature success on a project that hasn’t even gotten off the ground yet. Victoria points out that Neil is most likely just disliking Ji Min because of the way he was dismissed a few days back. Shaking his head, Neil comments that until Ji Min can drop a bit of the chip off his shoulder, then it’s going to be tense working together. Patting Neil on the back, Victoria advises that every new person that Neil works isn’t a ‘Brad Carlton.’
